I was recently laid off. Before turning in my work laptop I was allowed to download all my files to a flash drive to take with me. I bought a new laptop (w/Windows 7) and everything was going fine until about a week later when all of a sudden the computer does not recognize the device. I can find it under Device Manager where I get a "code 10 Device Cannot Open," but under "Computer Devices with Removeable Storage" it's as if it doesn't exist.
Is there any way to reclaim the files on this flash drive? I am rather desperate for those files.
